The Cardon is a type of cactus, of the largest known and growing on Gran Canaria, reaching 5-10 meters.

Its origin is from Argentina, but you can find a few of them on the island of Gran Canaria.

The sides are flat and the edges are sharp and have protrusions along its length,
ending in each of these two spines 4-5 mm long.

Their flowers are small, reddish-brown color.

These cactus secrete a type of latex that is extremely poisonous, especially when in contact with the mucous of the human body.

Their water needs are somewhat higher than for the rest of the cactuses family, but fitting good with the Gran Canaria Weather.

In the winter on Gran Canaria it will not need much water.
